“The American Civil War at Home,” the 2013 Signature Conference, was the fifth in an annual series sponsored by the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission. The event brought together prominent historians to talk about the home front and the meaning of emancipation to Americans enslaved and free.

Keynote Address

Eric Foner: Lincoln, Slavery, and Emancipation

Panel I: Emancipation and Its Limits

Panelists considered how slavery ended, the relative significance of the Union Army and the slaves themselves in bringing it about, and the Union Army's unwillingness to fully use black soldiers as agents of emancipation.

Panel II: Internal Dissent in the Confederacy and the Union

Presenters considered how the war caused both Union and Confederate home fronts to fracture from within.
